Illume, the quiz fest organised by quizzing society of SRCC was all about movies and fun on its third and last day. After two days of intellectual quizzing, the fest witnessed maximum footfall with the auditorium filled with people buzzing with excitement and shouting out answers. Although the “Mayapuri Bollywood quiz” which was scheduled to begin at 10:30 began by 12, the audience as well as the participants enjoyed a lot. RJ Rahul Makin who was the quiz master, entertained the audience with his “filmy shayaris” and jokes. The auditorium reverberated with the roaring of the crowd every time a question appeared on the screen.
Around 250 teams of three members each registered for the event which consisted of two preliminary and one final round. Twenty two groups got through the semi-final round; out of which, only six teams made it to the finals. After a long and difficult final round, the team representing SRCC- Sambhav Raj, Vaibhav Garg and Ojas took away the first prize and the second prize was won by Rachita, Shivani and Suyash who represented Hindu college. The winning team was felicitated with a sum of Rs 3000, a trophy and a certificate.
Following the Bollywood quiz, a scavenger hunt was also organised after which closing ceremony of the three day fest was conducted. The winners of all the three days were awarded with DPS Siliguri bagging the “Emerging team award” and St Stephen’s College taking away the overall rolling Illume Cup.
With this, Illume 2014 came to an end making its organizers extremely satisfied. “We did work really hard for these three days and now that it’s over I can finally breathe a sigh of relief that nothing went wrong and the fest was a great success,” says Nikita Das, joint secretary of the Quiz society.
